Foreign media reports have revealed that a portion of the new movie “Poor Thing” directed by Owens Ramos, featuring Emma Stone, William Dafoe, and Mark Ruffalo, has been released on November 30th, Beijing time. It has opened pre-sales in North America and will be released briefly before its December 8th and then later on with other dates.
Tony McNamara wrote the script for the film that won the Golden Lion Award for Best Picture at the Venice Film Festival this year, featuring Rami Yusuf, Christopher Abbott, Margaret Curry, Susie Benba, and others.
It is based on the Scottish author Alastair Gray’s novel of the same name and blends realistic, fantasy, and science fiction to reinvent the story of Frankenstein, set in the late Victorian period. The story follows Bella Baxter (Stone), despite her abuser status, being uncontrolled and scientifically curious; she survives an outbreak of drowning while the eccentric scientist Goodwin (Daphne) replaced her own brain due to her disinterest.
With Goodwin’s support, Bella aimed to acquire fresh insights and travel extensively. She joined forces with the clever and uncontrolled lawyer Duncan Waderburn (Rufalo) and journeyed across continents. Bellla liberated herself from the prejudices of her day and advocated for equality and freedom.
Following their collaboration with Stone on “Beloved”, Ramos and Stone have collaborated on a new film, featuring Jesse Plaimon, William Dafoe, Margaret Curry, Zhou Hong, and others. The script for this film was written and directed by Ramon’s former partner Evemius Philippe from the years 1989 to 1996.
